Users can create their own channels on which they upload videos of themselves talking about games or even live-streaming as they play. It is also used to screen gaming tournaments and other gaming related stuff. Looks like the next Xbox might allow gamers to broadcast their channel right from their console.
Essentially, yeah. It's mostly gaming capture or picture in picture, but they stream a lot of really great tournaments with higher production value too. You can support/donate money to certain channels (like pro player streams) by subscribing. I'd put money on a fully functional broadcasting app becoming available for next gen.
